Thorndike Street Walking Tour


What do a self-made millionaire, a nationally prominent silversmith, a minister of the First Baptist Church, the home of one of the first responders to Abraham Lincoln’s call for soldiers in the Civil War, a carpenter/ ship owner who helped convert a private home into the City Hall still in use, and a sailor who served aboard the U.S.S. Merrimack have in common?

Join us for a tour of Thorndike Street, one of Beverly’s most fascinating streets and learn about some of the unusual people who lived here. Walking tours offer insight into the hidden history of Beverly and introduce you to its key events and major figures. Rain or shine; in case of severe weather, check with us. $10/free for members
